We planned a last minute vacation and just happened to find this place. Staff was very helpful, they didn't have any rooms available at the hotel that could accommodate us. They informed us that one block closer to the beach they owned condos that would be perfect. We got to use the amenities at the hotel as well. It was... More

We stayed here 2 nights. Clean unit and friendly staff. We stayed in an older unit and we were told some were already renovated. Lacking outlets in the bathroom is a problem but they provided a 6 way outlet in the bedroom for our needs.When it is redone I am sure they will add outlets and update the kitchen .... More

We needed a room for one night and on a short notice. I called Surf 16 Motel and Rick answered and was very accomodating and we booked a room for the next day, We were pleasantly surprised how clean the room was and the size. It was an efficiency. It is pet friendly also. The location is ideal, two blocks... More

The replies by management are correct. Instead of being passive and writing everything in a review, try resolving your concerns with the staff. The air conditioner leaked on my son's smartphone overnight and ruined it. I showed Rick, the owner and manager, photos of why it was leaking in, instead of out. He gave us cash for the cost to...

Thanks Mat Like I try to tell everyone there are solutions to problems when we know about them. I think most people are starting to realize that trip advisor has its limitations. Anyone who has stayed here knows that me or someone from my family is always on premises and we do try our best to make you as comfortable... More

Just got home after 5 nights at Surf 16. I was very happy with my stay. Maids actually cleaned room daily. Nice and quiet and close to everything. Very affordable. Would definitely return. Restaurant and stores nearby.

I stayed at Surf 16 last week. Sept 2nd to 5th. I must say I really enjoyed myself. Impeccably clean room, fresh linens, and a beautiful pool. The owner Rick was a true gentlemen. The 1 thing that stood out the most was "Quiet Time". Posted signs asked guest to keep a civil tone during the hours of 10pm to... More

This was our second stay at this motel. We chose it for our first stay three years ago as we brought our dogs with us and it seemed to be the only pet friendly motel in the entire area. The rooms are all original. This means the bathrooms are mostly pink and green. The owner wants his motel to have... More

Very nice, clean and friendly. Great area, no need to drive. It's a great place for a vacation with your pets or just with family. Nice and relaxing, the pool area is a nice size area that you have plenty of room for all guests. Will return back this summer.
